Hedgehogs are nocturnal and social animals, so they’ll need to be kept in a cage with a lid. Hedgehogs also need to exercise on a wheel, which you can buy at any pet store. The bedding should be changed often to keep it clean and safe for your hedgehog, who will use it as part of his/her hideout!

Sugar Gliders

Tarantulas are a popular exotic pet. They can be kept in a terrarium, and will live for many years if cared for properly. Tarantulas need to be fed every few days, so you’ll want to make sure that your tarantula has enough food at all times.

The Munchkin Cat

The Munchkin Cat

The Munchkin cat, also known as the munchkin or minks, is a small domestic cat breed that was developed by crossing Persians with American Shorthairs. The first Munchkin was discovered in 1983 in Louisiana by Sandra Hochenedel, who named her “Toulouse”. In 1994 another breeder named Kay Cunliffe of England had a litter of three kittens born with short legs. One of the kittens, named “Dee Dee”, went on to become the foundation female for the breed when she produced an all-short-legged litter with a normal-legged male.

The Munchkin cat is a breed of domestic cat characterized by its short legs.

The Munchkin cat is a domestic cat breed characterized by its short legs. The first munchkin was discovered in 1983 and they were initially nicknamed “the runt of the litter.” The name “munchkin” was given to this breed because of their short legs, which resemble those of the fictional characters from The Wizard Of Oz.

The most prominent feature of these cats is their short stature; they range from 2 to 7 pounds (1-3 kg) with an average height between 6-10 inches (15-25 cm). Despite their small size, these felines are very energetic and love to play around! They’re also very affectionate towards their owners–they will often follow their humans everywhere they go just so they can be close by!

Munchkin cats have become popular in the United States and United Kingdom in recent years.

Munchkin cats have been around for thousands of years. They are a fairly new breed, having only been recognized by the American Cat Fanciers Association (ACFA) in 1996. In the United States and United Kingdom, munchkin cats are very popular among cat lovers who want a unique pet that looks different from other breeds on the market today.

Munchkins are not just one type …

How To Build A Puppy Crate

How To Build A Puppy Crate

Puppies are adorable, and they can be a lot of fun. But they can also be very destructive if left alone for too long. That’s where puppy crates come in handy! A crate is essentially a cage for your dog to live in while he’s still young and learning how to behave. It’s not always easy to build one from scratch, so here is a step-by-step guide on how you can make your own very quickly and easily:

Needed Materials

The materials you’ll need are:

  • Wire mesh (I used 1/2″x1/2″ welded wire). You can find this at any hardware store for about $10 for a 4’x8′ sheet. I used two sheets to make my crate, but one will work just as well if your puppy isn’t as destructive as mine!
  • Screws (the right length will depend on how thick your wire is). You only need a few of these since they have so many other uses later on. I used 2″, 3″, and 4″ screws in various sizes depending on what I was attaching together or building onto the frame of my crate. If you don’t have any spare screws lying around then go ahead and buy a bagful–you’ll be using them all over your house eventually anyway!
  • Door knob-style hinges (the kind that swing open like doors). These come in different sizes depending on how wide or tall your door needs to be when fully opened so make sure before purchasing these too! A couple pairs should do fine unless you’re planning on making several crates at once where case maybe get three pairs instead? It depends how long term projects go…


  • Screwdriver
  • Wire cutter/stripper and pliers (optional)
  • Hammer
  • Tape measure and ruler, or a tape measure that has a built-in ruler (not necessary but helpful)

How to Choose a Quality Small Dog Carrier

How to Choose a Quality Small Dog Carrier

When you’re looking for a small dog carrier, the options are practically endless. There are soft-sided carriers, hard-sided carriers, and carriers for dogs of all shapes and sizes. Some have wheels and some don’t. Some have multiple pockets and others don’t at all—but what matters most is finding one that works for your lifestyle and meets your needs as well as your dog’s.

Look for a good sturdy, durable fabric.

Look for a good sturdy, durable fabric.

You want to find a carrier that is made of a strong and sturdy fabric that can withstand the wear and tear of everyday use. Nylon is not necessarily the best choice because it can be slippery and difficult to clean in addition to being less durable than other types of materials. Look instead for something like canvas or cotton twill, which are both easy to clean and comfortable for your dog (or cat!).

Fur-friendlier fabrics are also preferable if you have long-haired pets who may shed their fur inside the carrier after using it–the last thing anyone wants is for their pet’s fur balls from being trapped inside their small animal carrier!

Find a carrier that’s easy to carry around.

To find a carrier that’s easy to carry around, look for one with handle length that’s appropriate for your height. If the handle is too long or too short, it may be difficult to carry the dog around comfortably when he or she is inside.

The weight of a carrier can also be problematic if it’s too heavy for you and your small dog. Carriers with thick padding tend to weigh more than those made from lightweight materials like nylon or mesh fabric; however, this doesn’t necessarily mean that all thickly padded carriers are heavy because some manufacturers use lighter-weight fabrics than …
